Betty loved to laugh and had a smile for everyone she encountered.
A lifelong love of sports – evident as far back as her school years when she was a cheerleader at Decatur High School. Married to David Terveer for 56 years, they had three children: Michael (Mike), Patrick (Pat) and Elizabeth (Liz).
Mrs. Terveer spent a good part of her life serving in some capacity with various athletic departments and sports, beginning as a volunteer teaching assistant and girls’ volleyball coach at Decatur Catholic School.
It is in this spirit of athletic competition, concern for youth, and support of the very community Betty loved, that her family has established the Betty Terveer Memorial Scholarship. Each year a Betty Terveer Memorial Basketball Scholarship will be awarded to a varsity male and female Basketball player that is graduating from North Adams.
